The hotel itself is beautiful and the gardens are lovely, however with the Israeli Embassy across the road, security is a pain. We were stopped by armed guards twice and had to produce our passports. The hotel is clean and the service is good. The rooms are well kept but rather austere. the bed was comfortable and the sheets crisp. I do not recommend eating in the one of the hotel restaurants, while the food and service are really good, the cost is astronomical and there are better, cheaper eateries in Nairobi. The breakfast buffet is really good and the chef went out of his way to make me gluten-free bread - bought my soul forever. stay there again. We will stay there again.
